Well that was a winter for the record books….we didn’t do anything special in fact we didn’t do much at all because for most of the winter we were in lockdown. Come to think of it this latest lockdown started at the start of November so this really has been Lockdown Winter! Still as we enter spring things are on the up: I’ve had my first covid jab, the weather over the past few days has been bright and quite mild and the first daffodils are starting the flower.
The only fly in this rosie picture that I am painting is that today, the official first day of spring, the weather is overcast and grey with just a hint of fog! (No glorious sunrise to greet the new season!) but for us here in Britain we can hopefully look forward towards some relief from the covid world we have inhabited over the past 12 months – and yes it has been 12 months! (There are so mant things that can go wrong before we can venture out towards a new normal – new variants popping up being the obvious immediate threat!)
But let us all look at the positives just now and hope that by the time I come to write about the end of Spring things are still looking so much on the up!
The future is bright…thank god the future isn’t orange….
